Take A Look At My Vanity! (Sort Of)

Thursday, September 14, 2017

If you've been keeping up with my latest blog posts, you'd know that I've been traveling in Minnesota for the past month and a half or so. Doesn't seem possible that I've been up here that long! Seems like just yesterday J and I made that 8 hour trip up here...Anyway, we've been staying at his mom's house, which has been really nice. I like the whole idea of staying at a house with people I know, verses staying at a hotel. Plus, that gives me a chance to unpack and just make myself at home. 😊

When packing for this trip, I really wanted to keep it simple and just pack the basics. For me, basics include everything but the kitchen sink! I just can't help it! I try to pack for every possible situation. Which meant packing two different types of deodorant. I've been loving my Degree Dry Protection deodorant. This keeps my armpits smelling nice and keeps them dry! I then like to finish up my deodorant with the Secret Rose Body Spray. Just spray a little bit of this directly on your armpits. Keeps them smelling extra fresh! 

I had to bring my favorite foundation with me! I actually didn't pack a whole bunch of makeup this time, because I've been keeping my everyday makeup fairly simple. But for foundation, I've been loving the CoverGirl Healthy Elixir foundation. Full coverage and amazing quality! Also like to pair that foundation with my Urban Decay Naked Skin concealers. OH! Almost forgot to mention my foundation primer! The Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. And then I also brought my beauty blender to use to blend out foundation. 

Brought my current favorite makeup remover with me! I've been using the Simple brand makeup remover, and I really like it! It's not greasy, and does a great job at removing waterproof makeup. 

Lastly, brought my Tresemme dry shampoo. Y'all this dry shampoo has gotten me and my hair through so much! 😂 But, during the music festival I didn't want to wash my hair, so just spray in some dry shampoo and call it good! 

That's currently whats on my vanity that isn't actually my vanity! Hope you guys liked this blog post! Hope you guys are having a great day and a great week!!

Ins & Outs #14

Thursday, September 07, 2017
It has been literally forever since I've posted an ins and outs post. I feel like when it comes to blogging, I haven't really had much inspiration for post ideas lately. Decided to scroll through some of my older posts, and thought an ins and outs post sounded really fun! 



I have been eating SO MUCH food lately! Ohhhmygosh. It's crazy! J and I got the wood fire pizza when we were in LeMars, then I got chicken strips when we went to DQ on our way home, and then ice cream from the Blue Bunny ice cream parlor in LeMars. Plus, last night we went to a bar and grill here in MN and I got a crispy chicken sandwich, and I ate the whole thing! 😳 After we stop traveling for a bit, this girl needs to go back on her diet...But for now, I'm just gonna enjoy all the foods, including the Ben and Jerry's Half Baked that someone bought for me last night. 😉


I've been enjoying traveling this past month, so much! I'm just so thankful that God has blessed me with a job that allows me to travel, and still work. I'm getting to do what I've always dreamed of doing, and honestly, I'm the happiest that I've been in a looooong time. So thankful and so blessed!! 💖


Specifically, Barefoot Pink Moscato. Super yummy! Also, can we just mention that Barefoot is $3 at home, but up it's $6?! Ruuuuude

-Leaves Changing Colors

It feels like fall in MN right now! The temps are dropping and the leaves are beginning to change color. I'm a very happy girl right meow! 🍂🍁


-Lack Of Cats

This crazy cat lady is going...well...crazy. I haven't seen ANY cats since I've been in MN, and I've been in MN for almost a month and a half now! I'm having cat withdrawals right meow. 😭😹

That's it for my ins and outs! Hope you guys are having a great week! Praying for everyone in the path of Hurricane Irma. 💖

Coffee Chat: Volume 33

Wednesday, September 06, 2017

1. Ohhhmygosh, it feels like it's been forever since I've written a blog post! Life has been kind of crazy lately, but I'm not complaining, as it's been so much fun. I've been traveling, meeting new friends, and spending time with other friends. Also, eating lots of food haha! God has blessed me so much this past month, and I'm just so thankful that I've been able to do what I've been doing. 💖

2. J and I just got back from the Old Time National Country Music Association Festival in LeMars, IA. It was such an awesome week! J was actually performing, and eventually he got me on stage by the end of the week. 😂 We got to meet so many talented musicians last week, and made so many forever friends. J also won Traditional Country Album Of The Year!!! It was such an amazing week! 😊

3. LeMars is the hometown of Blue Bunny ice cream, so obviously we had to go to the Blue Bunny ice cream parlor while we there! I got a scoop of cookie dough and some kind of brownie flavor. So yummy!! 😋 We also discovered a wood cooked pizza place called Catalanos. Super yummy pizza! And I of course had to get my coffee fix while there, so I found a local coffee shop called Bellissimo. Love their coffee! If you end up going, tell them that Chelsea sent you!

4. On our way back home from LeMars, we ran into a severe thunderstorm. This was my first ever MN severe thunderstorm. It was kind of crazy! There was hail on the road, that looked like snow, which made the road super slick to drive on. It was kind of insane! But the view after the thunderstorm, was very beautiful. 

5. We're back to our current home now, which means I'm back to work, designing for Etsy, blogging, and thinking about filming. Speaking of work, I just posted these Texas Strong shirts. A portion of the proceeds from the shirts, will be going to Hurricane Harvey relief. Please check them out! Along with work, I'm also catching up on sleep. After the shows, we'd go to jams, and sometimes those could last until 2 or 3 in the morning! But it was so much fun. 

I had such a fun week! I hope you guys are having fun too! Hope you guys are having a great week!
